What a Girl! A really good read and it brings out the determination and grit so often lost in today`s young people. Her parents must be very proud of her and what she has achieved through hard work and dedication to her chosen livelihood. Emma`s love of her dogs and her caring attitude to her flocks makes this whole book unputdownable. I thoroughly enjowed it

A most enjoyable book about a very determined and strong young woman who has a great love of country life. She is a typical young woman who enjoys company, nights out, fun and looking her best yet she follows her dream to spend time training her beloved sheepdogs by living alone on a remote farm looking after her flock of sheep. Life is hard in the remote area and she has little in the way of home comforts. Winters are harsh and unrelenting yet she shows a tenacity and for the most part she maintains a sense of humour. Each obstacle she kicks out of the way and continues to build her life on her own on this remote hill farm. A good read about a strong young lady who loves the companionship of her award winning sheepdogs and works unbelievably hard to follow her dream and be a successful hill farmer and dog trainer.

This is an amazing book, difficult to put down. A must for all thinking of living of the land, or looking to be inspired by a hard working couragous young woman. Most admirable is Emma Gray's ability to laugh at herself and telling her story without looking for sympathy or pitty. I hope there will be another book soon!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Emma's daily work load, both on the farm/ field, and also her
occasional social events.
Even at such a young age, Emma managed to cope, battling through the most unpredictable situations. An admirable book.

Some of my family live in Northumberland, so reading One girl and her dogs was great because I could relate to all the places mentioned
in her book, what a brave young woman to take on the task of managing her own farm miles from anywhere, I would recommend it as a lovely story
to read, regardless of whether you know the area or not, I have a Border Collie so if ever another book is written about her life I would love to
read it !!!!0.

What a little gem of a book, I loved it. Emma has given us a little taste of her life in the remote Fallowlees Farm in Northumberland, her knowledge of lambing is just astonishing to me and her beautiful dogs are amazing, I must admit to shedding a tear now and then, but there was plenty to chuckle at too. More please Emma and maybe a few photo's to go with it next time?
